Olimpija got burnt in Spodnja Šiška, Joao Henriques with all guns blazing at the NZS: “Whoever delegated the game today at 13:00 wants to kill us!”
Spodnja Šiška remains cursed for Olimpija. After the 4:2 win over Bravo, Joao Henriques was not only angry with his players, but also with … Football Football Association Slovenia! The Portuguese had the luxury of a comment in which he didn’t hold back… Joao Henriques was particularly critical of the NZS, first and foremost because of the date on which the city showdown was played.
“Two things to highlight about this match. One: We made a lot of mistakes. We were leading 2:1 and they had to do practically nothing to get the win. As a collective, we did enough to win. But you can’t win if you make individual mistakes like that. Bravo’s second and third goals, that’s unacceptable,“, Joao Henriques told Sportklub after the match at ŽAK.
Joao Henriques: “I don’t know what they want from us”
The expert, who replaced Alberto Riera on the Dragons’ bench, continued in a much harsher tone: “Secondly, I have to point out – and I don’t say this as any kind of excuse, because as I said, we have made mistakes ourselves – that the Football Association of Slovenia will have to decide what they want from this league. Whoever delegated the match today at 13. hour, wants to kill us. On Wednesday we had a match against Lille at 16:30, and we returned home at midnight. Today we had the game at 13. hours. So not even 72 hours later… There is only one match tomorrow, and it’s not until 20:15!? I don’t know what they want from us? What are they trying to do to Olimpija? I don’t know… The people in charge of delegating matches are putting our players at risk. There will be injuries…”
The Olimpija coach is also not happy with the schedule in the coming days, he is bothered by playing on Thursday(Koper) and Sunday(Rogaska).”We have a new game on Thursday. It will be less than 72 hours from Thursday to Sunday, when we have another match. Because we play on Thursday at 20:15 and on Sunday at 15:00. Maybe we are some kind of guinea pigs, so that the NHS can see how long we can keep up this pace,” was Joao Henriques’ pique.
